Synopsis
Harold "Speedy" Swift is an upbeat young man whose fatal attraction for baseball always causes him to lose his jobs. But when speedy discovers that his girlfriend's father is being muscled out of his trolley route by railway magnates, he decides to take over the route to protect the old man. The trolley must make its rounds at least once every 24 hours, so the magnates hire thugs to stop him. Eventually the magnates manage to steal the trolley and Speedy must dash to find the trolley and get it back to its route before the 24 hours are up. He makes it just in time and then forces the magnates to buy the route for a cool 100,000 dollars.
